Volunteer with North West Cancer Research

Details Hide[-]

North West Cancer Research are looking for volunteers to support their community fundraiser at upcoming events and festivals in the Lancashire area.

- Carnforth Carnival - 06/07/2019

- Fleetwood Festival of Transport - 27/07/2019

Volunteers will help with the set up of the charities stall and then during the course of the day will work the community fundraiser to promote the charity, their Sun Safety campaign which will include giving out information and holding collection buckets. There will also be the opportunity to help run the children’s activities on the stall which will include UV keyring and bracelet making to encourage sun awareness and the wearing of sun cream.

Travel arrangements can be made for those who don’t have their own transport and lunch costs are covered by the charity; you will also be provided with charity t-shirts and information. This is a great opportunity for the right volunteers to spend a fun day whilst giving time back to a local cause.

NWCR is looking for someone who is confident enough to approach and talk to members of the public in a friendly, open manor as well as communicating with children. We are happy to work with people who haven’t volunteered before and are looking to build their experience in this field; if there is a particular skill that a volunteer is looking to develop then we can support this and give opportunities where possible.

The right volunteer will be non-judgemental, non-discriminatory and will have a friendly, approachable demeanour.
